Investing In Autographed Memorabilia
Thinking about your future? You might want to think about investing in autographed memorabilia. Why? Well the answer is simple.
You have seen a great depression and youíve seen several recessions. Youíve seen the dollar, your 401k, real estate and gold go up and down for years and,
during all that time, memorabilia continues to go up in value and always will. Bands break up, musicians stop signing and they eventually pass away.
All this leads to your memorabiliaís value going up. It is all about supply and demand. If you have an autograph that everyone wants and no one can obtain anymore,
you can get thousands of dollars for it.
Just like any investment, you are waiting for the most opportune moment to sell. While you are waiting, at least autographed memorabilia can be displayed on your wall as art. Memorabilia looks great and makes for great conversation with your guests. You canít do that with gold or your 401k.
Consider starting a collection.
If you are interested in investing in memorabilia, the best thing to do is start a collection. You donít have to put all your money in at once, just purchase a piece here and there when you have extra money to spend. Before you know it, you will end up with a large and valuable collection. Until you are ready to sell, put your collection on display in your home or office. People will love to talk about it and you may get some early offers from buyers.
Who to invest in?
Not all autographs will get you the same profit. To get the most out of your money you will want to know which memorabilia to invest in.
The most important thing to consider when purchasing an autograph for an investment is the artistís long term popularity. That will bring you the most profit later on. Musicians come and go in trends just like clothing, but some have the staying power to remain popular for decades. The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Eagles, U2 and anyone else in that league are your best bets. They have been around a long time and remain just as popular now as they were when they started. Their memorabilia is already valuable now and will only go up from here. Newer artists can be a bit of a risk. Justin Bieber may be extremely popular now, but what about 5-10 years from now? If you like him, feel free to buy it, but if you are thinking strictly about profit, consider a more established musician.
